The purpose of this release of the book is to update it to support webpack 4 while preparing towards the next paper edition.
Compared to the previous release this one is even lighter although it's more informative at places. Webpack became simpler and this meant the book could as well. Most notably CommonsChunkPlugin is gone now and the tool comes with better defaults.
SurviveJS - WEBPACK
Somehow the December and the early part of the year just went by. Organizing React Finland took its toll and it's still an ongoing effort. On the plus side, doing this has taught me a lot so far. I've also begun to generate some business in Vienna although it hasn't been particularly easy. There's likely more to come and these things tend to get easier over time. After webpack 4 came out, I updated the book to it fairly quickly. I gave it some extra polish and now it's the time to release the improvements to the wider public.
There's still some work left to be done and I can cover topics such as WebAssembly in future versions but overall it feels like the best version yet. I released a series of silent releases as before. The chapter structure is intact but the contents have changed significantly at places as webpack 4 allowed simplifications. The grammar has been improved as well. In total commits went to the book since the last public release. You can find the changes at GitHub.
Remember especially the "Files changed" tab as it gives you a good overview of what's happening with the book.
SurviveJS - Webpack + React
Even though I have a list of improvements planned for the webpack book, it doesn't make sense to push it to paper until mini-css-extract-plugin and Babel 7 have reached stable status. It will simplify CSS configuration somewhat.
Most likely the next book release has to do with the maintenance book. There are those last bits of content that require work and the book needs structural editing as well. That said, it's already a useful one even its current state.

SurviveJS - React
Published: 19 Mar Combined with webpack , a bundling tool, you have a powerful frontend development environment in your hands. The SurviveJS effort consists of two books that help you to adopt these technologies. They are available as a bundle. SurviveJS - React shows you how to build a simple Kanban. The idea is that if you can build a simple application, you can probably build something more complex after that. The first application is always the hardest. In addition to fundamental React knowledge, you will pick up design techniques as you develop a kanban application step by step and learn to understand it in detail.
While implementing the Kanban step by step, you will pick up basic ideas of how to compose your application, how to manage data related concerns, how to style your application, how to implement drag and drop.
Those are just few topics of the many covered. Kanban animation.

Even though the application looks simple, it's complex enough to illustrate potential problems such as reference handling. The React book is based on a boilerplate. If you want to understand the techniques used in the boilerplate itself, check out the webpack book above. Even if you know React well already, there might be handy ideas to pick up.
